All the courses offered by AUB are considered to be academic strengths as the university specialises in the arts. AUB makes sure that every course provides the highest standard of education through theory and practical lessons.
However, certain courses do stand out for their wider recognition and graduate success. One of these is Illustration, where 98% of students who graduate go on to either find work or commence further study upon completion of their course. Many Illustration students who have graduated from AUB have gone on to work on notable projects, including doing illustrations for the Great British Bake Off and winning major prizes such as the Macmillan Prize.
Another outstanding course at AUB is Costume and Performance Design, with students who have graduated then going on to work on major films such as the live action Cinderella movie, as well as partnering with celebrity names such as Jamie Oliver on various projects.
